HBO Developing 4 ‘Game of Thrones’ Spin-Off Shows

May 5, 2017

Entertainment Weekly, announced today that HBO is hard at work on developing a slew of spin-offs for their hit Emmy-award winning show Game of Thrones. While many know that main storyline is going to come to a close after next year’s final season. The cable company was always going to look for some type of show to fill the void.

However, they aren’t just looking to create just one spin-off series based on George R.R. Martin’s classic books. They have a writers room full of feature film writers who had different ideas of the four potential shows. With author George R.R. Martin personally helping develop two of the four. Currently, the writer’s room includes Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Fox’s Minority Report); Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class) along with Martin; Brian Helgeland (A Knight’s Tale, L.A. Confidential); and Carly Wray (Mad Men) with Martin.

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have stated multiple times they don’t have any active plans for spin-offs however they will still executive produce these projects if greenlight. Which is a shame considering their writing has been superb in the series. Now, it’s unknown when these shows will take place however they are expected to “explore different time periods of George R. R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.” With many fans hoping for a prequel series that follows Robert Baratheon’s war with The Mad King.
